    Perfect blocks are dumb.
    Master strokes are even dumber.
    No matter what "build" you make you're always gonna be specced into everything with a bias towards Longswords.
    Not a bad game by any stretch, just wasted potential.

      The mace is the best weapon in the game. Longsword is only better against unarmored trash opponents which cease to exist after you finish the bandit camp sidequests and move on to Cumans

        no matter what weapon you use there is a specific amount of damage that is dealt when you press Q at the right time for a master stroke, even before you actually hit the dude in the animation
        it's silly and needed more time in the oven, it ultimately doesn't matter if you apply conventional logic of shields>axe, swords>armour, blunt>armour, just press q at the right time and don't bother with combos or you'll get q'd yourself 9 times out of 10

        It really doesn't matter once you get good enough. A longsword will kill anything really fucking fast, hell a shortsword will as well. Past a certain I stuck with longsword over maces merely because they have more combos which is fun and armor wasn't really a factor anymore. ...and past a certain point, combos stopped mattering as well because no enemy could actually survive the first two hits, so at that point I just stuck with the longsword because it was cooler and that's it.

    it shits the bed with multiple opponents, or if you are on an incline, or if you are too up close (you can literally be touching the enemy and swing and still not make contact, not really sure how the combat works for that to happen)

      >(you can literally be touching the enemy and swing and still not make contact, not really sure how the combat works for that to happen
      if you're that close, you dont have room to swing your weapon so you gotta shove him away

    combat is great overall, but the lock-on system is a mess, and combos/alternating strikes don't work as described mostly due to a silly high perfect block rate among enemies - even lowly untrained peasant bandits. still love the game

    It's too ez and all it takes is power training with Bernard, afterwards you can just button mash to victory.

    I have to kill some guy in the cloister how close am I to this games merciful end. It starts out interesting and fun and then becomes a slog of fetch quests and dialogue with minimal player input

      you're still kinda far, there's still two "sieges" and then you're clear

      just drop it

      i dropped it once or twice before i really appreciated the game, the game gets quite a lot worse not long after where you're at, at least in the writing department

    You think it's good because you don't know any better. I am serious.

    Play Mount and Blade or better yet CMW/Mordhau (And lament the fact that there is no SP game with that kind of combat).

      not everything has to be sweaty combat, retard
      point me to a game that does historical medieval exploration better and i'll suck your fucking dick
      in 10 minutes you'll still be retarded and my mouth will be clean

        I don't want it to be sweaty. Mount and Blade combat is actually pretty shit but it's leagues better than whatever the fuck KCD has.

        Have you seriously never played Chivalry and thought that there should be a singleplayer game with combat like that? Dark Messiah is the only game that comes close.

    NPCs will eat the most obvious swings without a response but the moment you try to combo they become parry and dodge gods.

      it really blows that memorizing and practicing combos just doesn't get you anywhere in vanilla. it was only something fun to do in tournaments. button mashing gets you the best result against any enemy, contrary to the tutorial description that implies feint and combo mastery were a high skill high reward goal, when it's the opposite for any enemy class.
      as a side, if any anons have any combat mod recs that they enjoyed, i'd love to see them

    because stances literally don't matter despite the game strongly implying that they do
    perfect blocks don't require you to actually block in the direction of the swing and stabs are OP as fuck so most of the combat boils down to mashing block and stab
